"Cross My Heart" by Carol Cox


About this book:

  “Violet Canfield has a tender heart. Growing up, she cared for a constant stream of orphaned animals. Now, when three orphaned children show up on her doorstep, it's second nature to protect the kids from the wild-eyed man chasing them. Raised in the shadow of strong men, Willie Bradley believes it's time to prove his own worth. But his new job - delivering three mischievous children to their guardian in Airzona Territory - may be too much for him. When the trio slip away from him and take refuge at Violet's farm, he must not only try to locate their missing guardian but persuade Violet he's trustworthy as well. Can Violet and Willie get past their first impressions and discover each other's true character? What does God have planned in their "chance meeting"?”

My personal Rating-
This was a really sweet and easy read! Lots of faith content and children antics. There was a few parts or words that didn’t seem like they would be historically accurate, but it was overall a cute read.


See y’all on Friday with a new review!
